    What SATA - AHCI drivers do the N-Series Pentium processors use?

    LoneWolf15

      I have searched Intel's site as well as multiple others, after purchasing an N3700-based (Braswell) mainboard.  The N-Series Pentiums are SoCs; there are graphics drivers, a form of USB3 drivers, and several other installs --but no SATA controller/AHCI driver.  I would much prefer to use Intel drivers than Microsoft's basic AHCI driver if one is available, even just the desktop/workstation driver, but I don't wish to break an OS install, and of course, Windows warns that Intel RST drivers may not be compatible.

       

      Has anyone else tested this, and, what is Intel's position on what drivers should be used?
